Positive Vs Negative - Poem by Ponniah Ganeshan

No one can deny
There is something beyond our knowledge
Something we can not see but onlyfeel
Something we can not study but only believe
It is a power that we call it God
You call it a Lord in the heaven
I call itimagining in various forms,
Being not able to confine it into one form
It is a power pervading beyond positive and negative.
The people belong to the religion of their own
The people belong to one and same race
The people who speak one and the same language
Conflict with each other.
Even members of same families with one another
For reasons notknown to me.
You may say it is due to narrow politics
And unjust enrichment
Yet I see it as the confrontation between the positive
And negative pervading the entire universe
Controlled by the POWERthat is beyond
Our knowledge.

    It is a power pervading beyond positive and negative.
    The people belong to the religion of their own
    The people belong to one and same race
    The people who speak one and the same language
    Conflict with each other......the positive and negative effects of the thinking of people which create chaos and if positive love. thank u. dear poet for your perceptions. thank u. tony
